Quoting limited to 3 levels deep

I really have no interest in his love life. But in order for him to be savaged for me is he has to start interacting with the people who raised him. You know, his REAL family.
That's really how they should reboot him. Without a woman for a while.
But they paired him with Deimos... :ermm: Not sure it's better lol.

Ratings Report for the Week of December 19-23, 2016
I don't think any of their stories right now are very good or thrilling but when this regime started the situation was really bad. There was no potential left for them to continue in a more reasonable pace, so in a way I can understand why they couldn't pace their stories better. There was no time to develop Gabi/Chad because something big had to be happening around holidays. Chloe's pregnancy was started by the previous regime, the baby was supposed to be Deimos' if I rememeber correctly, NB had to go on ML. The Stefano/Hope story was started last year too (was it before or after Higleys LOA?) and viewers were angry Hope was walking around like nothing had happened lol.
So while I am not particularly thrilled with what I see on-screen right now, I can admit that given the circumstances, they aren't doing all that bad, and some viewers seem to like one or more of their stories.

What is it with soaps these days? Y&R puts "we have chemistry" in their scripts, Days PR person states in their tweets who have chemistry. LOL Not trying to say they don't but maybe, just maybe viewers can make up their minds for themselves.

Yeah I believe what happened was he was with Diana in Greece and they were kind of dating, and he didn't know she was investigating him with Roman. Then he saw her and Roman kissing out in public like two morons, and after that he turned evil-Victor on her and was going to force her to marry him so that her mother, who was his longtime enemy, wouldn't go to jail? Or something like that. But I believe up until he saw her kissing Roman, he thought she really cared about him. Poor dumb Victor.
Yes, he did :laugh: .

+120,000 viewers for Days is impressive! (Yet a small loss in the key demo...)

Look at how close we are to last year's numbers, I'm shocked. It shows that Days had a really bad December 2015, I think a lot of viewers felt betrayed when Bo was killed off right after the anniversary. Some came back in January for the car crash but didn't stick around.

Overall, I think Quan/Higley are on the right track, the recent gains are happening without stunts. I think Abby's return is working well for the show. We'll see if it's sustainable.
The week these ratings are for was a decent week with a culmination on Friday. The next week (NYE) wasn't as good but maybe people will tune in because it's holidays.

Though he didn't force her, Kim still carried around feelings of disgust, shame, and fear, which were displayed every time she saw Victor. It was still a degrading experience for her, so every time she saw him she was reminded of that.

I went back and rewatched the scenes (ugh, lol) and Kim played into the fact that Victor really wanted to believe she cared about him. Even though he had many reasons to see through what she was doing, such as the fact that he had caught her faking her blindness earlier, he acts genuinely pleased that she seems to want him. She tells him things like "You make me feel beautiful" and "I feel secure in your arms" and he tells her he wants to make her happy. Then when she gets a little hesitant, he offers to leave and giver her time to think, and she stops him from going. He definitely had no idea she knew he was going to kill Shane. Though Victor was always nefarious and manipulative, it was pretty consistent with his character back then to be kind of naive with women. He always wanted to believe they loved him - Kim, Diana, Yvette, etc. - when really they loved someone else. Then once he realized they were using him in some way, he would go into his revenge mode.
Yet, he was perfectly fine with marrying Diana knowing she was in love with RoJohn and only agreed to marry him in exchange for her mother's freedom lol. If I remember correctly he wanted her to sign a contract and there was something about him getting sole custody of their children in case of a divorce (or something like that).

Why can't they buy license to some video clips (stock footage) featuring Prague. It has a beautiful old town.
Y&R did it once with Paris I think.

Did anyone else watch the classic 1984 episode today? I did and loved it!

Brenda Dickson as Jill was delicious.

Eileen Davidson and her 80's hair. So weird seeing her and Jamie Lyn Bauer interact as Ashley and Lorie when I've only ever seen them together as Kristen and Laura.

Who was the crazy lady in disguise trying to kill Nikki? I loved her.
Eve Howard was trying to kill Nikki. She wanted Victor.

The tone of YR was so different. I loved it!
Eve I believe was Victor's secretary at the time and was played by the beautiful Margret Mason who some of you Days fans might remember as Linda in the Mickey and Maggie storyline.
That diguise was good. Would have never recognized her.

Not to my recollection. Shane, Kimberly, et al sat in moral condemnation of Victor for a bunch of things back then, but not that. I mean not that in the sense that he was accused of forcing himself on her that night or even blackmailing her into doing it.
They never said it explicitly, it's just that Kimberly/Victor scenes came across that way (to me). As someone who didn't follow the story from the beginning I remember having the feeling it was coercion back then.

Lani's story under the last writing regime was cut short when they decided to get rid of her,Shawn,and Belle.Lani has been back in Salem for less than a week yet she still has more story with Abe,Theo,Valerie,JJ,and likedly Gabi in that period than she had the first month of her last stint.Her situation with JJ will likely lead to additional story for Abe and Valerie.I also wonder how they are going to writer her relationship with Valerie and her upcoming story which will also likely include Abe.In some instances,the writing for the character makes the character boring.I am looking forward to seeing where the return of Lani and Valerie will lead.In any case I still believe they need more women in her age range so I am happy she is back and I hope the writing for her is better.
I don't see her obsessing over/stalking JJ but if she stays and returns to the police force I can see how there would be some awkwardness with JJ that they would have to work through in order to work on the force together.Ditto for her and Shawn.
Lani's story from the last regime was cut short because it was literally cut. She had a story that didn't air. She's only recurring this time. This story is just as likely to get cut.
Is it a good thing that they cut her story from the last regime LOL?

I hate that we went from the awesome triangle that was Chad/Abby/Ben to this dull-as-dirt story with Gabi. They're really making all the characters look bad in this, IMO.
Before Ben turned into a serial killer, I thought it was a boring triangle because of Ben/Abby. And after, Ben was not a viable option anymore.

I like Chad/Gabi better than Ben/Abby, it feels a little more viable if you forget that Corday said to root for Chabby.
With Corday's track record, though .... :blulaugh:

Yes, it wasn't rape, or coercion for that matter. It wasn't like EJ with Sami. Sleep with me or Lucas dies. Victor has no idea that she knows that he has Shane locked in the study. It isn't until after they slept together, he can't find his watch, the plug has been pulled on the clock, that he realized that she wanted him to lose track of time to save Shane. There are a multitude of crimes to justly pin on Victor back then, but rape isn't one of them. Such a drastically different personality them. The sarcasm and bluntness dialed back about tenfold. More charming, smooth but deadly. That Victor didn't call woman whores and tramps and sluts.
What is interesting is that they treated it on-screen as an assault/coercion. Or at least that was my impression as a teen when I started watching (1987 episodes).

OMG now they are trying to tell us on-screen that Villy have chemistry :roflol: :roflol: :roflol: .

Do they think if they put "we have chemistry" in their scripts it will magically appear on-screen? Good luck Y&R :teehee: , you gonna need it.
